Mr. Prewitt hit the nail on the head with his statement, "technology is no panacea." Without the proper strategies/policies in place, and ensuring your organization's practices match, any technology will likely not be effective, and at best, not nearly as effective as it should be/has to be. With regard to labor management software, and this is transferable to most healthcare technologies, our view is this: Your software is the tool that automates your plan. Good software and a bad plan only automate a bad plan. Without the necessary groundwork, all you end up with when you implement a technology is automated chaos. The first step is the planning – the inward focus on what you are currently doing that can be improved – and then finding a vendor that can help your organization effectively implement those plans. Technology is no panacea, but if it is paired with sound strategies, policies and practices and backed by buy-in up and down the line, it certainly can work wonders.
